Add to EJ Playlist This German/Russian wannabe ghostrider crashes when he underestimates his own speed and the distance to the front car.
The amazing part about it is that he stands up, crosses the busy road and goes back to his bike. Even though the bike is totaled, he has only minor injuries (concussion & shoulder muscle rupture).
Take a look at his protective bike dress and let it be a lesson...
I don't wanna know what would have happened if he hadn't worn it - still pretty amazing.
Btw, in the end he says he is still driving this crazy until today. I'm surprised he hasn't earned a Darwin award yet...
[Correction]: Apparently he's from Luxembourg and not Russian. The accents in German sound really similar and the name they gave him is Russian.
Add to EJ Playlist Acidente de um rapaz de Americana (39 anos e 2 filhos) quando foi testar seu macacão.
Alguns ficaram impressionados dizendo que a "alma" do rapaz sai do corpo (pare o video aos 8 segundo que conseguirá ver).
Eu particularmente acho que é água do radiador da moto...

A car explodes while going up a pretty steep sand dune, when the driver is finally able to get out there's no brakes on the car so it rolls down real fast with flames getting bigger and smoke getting blacker.

In the comment section, member "tomh1138" claims to have been witness to this. His comments are found below.
An ice-covered tree limb falling onto a power line. Captured live by WHO TV Channel 13 out of Des Moines, Iowa, on February 25, 2007. The limb fell directly onto the line, causing a series of explosions of the transformers of the grid.
tomh1138's comments -----
This happened in Urbandale, IA. I'm a member of the Urbandale Fire Dept. and was at this scene (just slightly out of camera view) to the right where our fire engine was parked. The guy running and diving in the background was also on the engine with me. We initially were called out on a report of a tree on fire.
When we first arrived on scene, we had parked almost directly under where the power lines were. Our dispatch information did not mention anything about problems with the power lines. Once we saw how close the branch was to the power lines, we moved back to a safe distance. About 5 minutes later, the branch fell and then you see what happens in the video.
It was pure luck that the camera crew was there at the time they were. The "explosion" was pretty intense. You could feel the vibration from it in the ground over 50 ft. away.
